  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    The way I see it - bozo wants no deal. Remember that brexit has long since stopped being a policy and has ended up now as a cult. And to win a general election bozo needs all those brexit party...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    So looking at the brexit options now I guess we're down to: 1) Revoke A50 2) HoC indicative vote 3) Short extension from EU, but with strict conditions 4) Long extension from EU 5) Long extension from EU but the...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    I see may is now apparently going back to the EU early to try to convince the EU over her short extension plan. Snag is she still has nothing at all as a plan B. In the words of another...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    (In reply to post 64) Pretty much I agree I think there's going to be a hard brexit on the 12th. I still think what I said in the previous post is going to happen -- namely that may and...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Not sure if I'm right here but I still think may is secretly now wanting crash-out/no deal brexit. The reason why? I'll note how at least some of the so-called "anger" from the ERG almost seems fake. I mean if...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    >Close to despair ... What happens next? - May tries to bring her dreadful deal back for a fourth time. Heads banging against walls all round. Ugh x.x :-( - General election - Softer brexit with a customs union -...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Random thought -- what if there actually isn't a majority for *anything* in parliament? I mean literally every option dosen't have enough support. What then? I guess parliament just BSOD'd x.x ! ljones...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Maybe may won't prorogue parliament? In the commons today there wasn't any mention of a hard brexit (and might it be off the table) plus unless I'm going mad didn't may herself say "international law takes presidence over UK law"...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Well the commons has just had their "indicative vote" and it got through - 329 to 302. But isn't it really completely meaningless? This vote is apparently only to do with the political declaration (not much more than a set...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Well as of 2.25pm the remoke A50 broke 5 million (it is now on 5,003,751 signatures). Add to that the million or so who took part in the march and that's quite a sizable number of people. Annoyingly though the...
  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?
    >This leads to ... interesting ... political implications. If the SNP were to encourage the brexiter contingent in Westminster they'd lose votes back home, but the most likely short-term path to the SNP's long-term goal (independence) is for Brexit to...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    I hope I'm not going off topic here and I apologise if I am! But since the vote in the HoC is still a little while away what does everyone here think will happen -- will it be stay in...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Tiny bit of news -- in the back of my mind I seem to remember trump saying if the UK gets a trade deal with the EU there'll be no trade deal with the US. Prehaps I was correct? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-46352463...

  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    >What can you come up with? How to fix brexit? The short answer? You can't. It was broken and impossible from day one - and there's no point in even trying. Brexit was stillborn - no point in trying to...

    Re: 457/Moz >One interesting thing I read the other day is that in the UK one reason they can't find citizens for fruit picking etc is that the unemployment benefits are structured to prevent it... Not sure if the unemployment...

    Reply to : Pidgeon (64) >Apart from the bits about copyright law (on whose likelihood I am entirely unequipped to comment), nearly all of that gives me a strange feeling that you are posting from an alternate universe where things...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Replying to comment from Pigeon (41): Pretty much, and I've found this problem as well -- most people don't seem to have a clue as to what is going on and it is being made worse by almost everyone deciding...
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    Second round projection: 65.5% macron, 34.5% le pen If that holds up once all the votes are counted I wonder how that bears out for may and the EU? ljones...
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    Ok, so here we go! Apologies for ressurecting a slightly old thread but the french presidental elections are underway -the count - though turnout is said to be down to 65.3% . The BBC are saying we'll have a better...
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    Ok this is an odd newsline: France elections: Le Pen 'steps aside' as party leader http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-39696861 Surely dosen't make sense? ljones...
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    Hope this isn't going to take this thread too far OT, but the first part of the french elections is underway; the polls have now closed. Emmanuel Macron(23%); Marine Le pen(23%); Francois Fillon (19%); Jean-luc melenchon (19%); Benoit hamon (7%)....
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    It is tempting to say that the tories will come out - how shall we say - "smelling of roses" for this election, but in reality - who knows? Polls have been wrong several times now and although from now...
  • Commented on 2117 revisited
    Well I hope I'm not derailing or spamming here, but just wanted to point out may wants to call an election on 8 June. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-39629603 ljones...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Don't know if this helps at all (probably not!) but if you search on amazon.co.uk for "card phone" you can find some very low spec but simple phones for not a lot. Some are listed for as little as £15!...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Agreeing with charlie here btw, and pondering my own fate. I'm due to go to the US not immediately but in several months' time around the end of june. And I'm honestly not knowing what to do about "you have...
  • Commented on "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" 2017 continued.
    http://thehill.com/policy/finance/314991-trump-team-prepares-dramatic-cuts That makes bad reading now that trump has come to power officially and if he acts out some of the things there. ljones...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    >""A survey by the Money Advice Service has found that four in 10 adults in the UK do not have £500 or more in savings". To me, a lot of the problem there is simply because wages in the UK...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-38561507 (Martin McGuinness resigns as NI deputy first minister) Nobody got that one in the predictions! Apparently under the power-sharing agreement this could trigger an election in ireland. One though though -- what are the odds (and if one even...
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    Going right back to the start - the queen apparently *may* miss the new year church service. Not going to die on Jan 3 though! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-38480869 ljones...
